Abstract:

"'If Pressed'-the second collection of poetry from Andrew McEwan-explores forms of pressurized and pressurizing language as a means to shed light on the depressions we live among in our modern-day lives. Overlapping language of fear and speculation gain momentum in these poems, where layers of atmospheric and emotional lexicons-ranging from descriptions of the mid-2000s financial crisis and subsequent recession, to writing on melancholia from the 1600s, to weather reports and condo listings, to pharmaceutical sales pitches and literary book reviews-focus attention on the ways that anxiety so easily and completely infiltrates our daily personal and public experiences."--Provided by publisher.
